Counting Walker's jobs

Scott Walker has promised to create 250,000 jobs, although he also says government doesn't create jobs. Contradictions aside, how are we going to keep score and hold him to his promise?

Will he take credit and count jobs like the 1,000 which are going to be added in Marinette because of a bill signed by President Obama that includes some military ships to be built in Marinette?

Walker's not governor yet, but the jobs won't come until after he's sworn in.

Will he subtract the jobs that leave the state while he's governor, or are we only counting new jobs? If there are 250,000 new ones and 100,000 lost jobs, has he kept his promise?

It would be helpful to know the ground rules before the game begins.
